Just having a bit of fun ! :)

SL + tablet doodling.

Stress relief, et cetera.



aaand the original, here.

After months of stress and worry, the real estate mess is finally over. We are not moving; the woman whose house we were in the process of buying decided four days before the closing that she didn't want it to happen.


Although we can't say we're happy with the result, we're feeling a tremendous sense of relief that the whole ungodly train wreck has finally come to a close, and that we can get some closure on this situation. The twists and turns this thing has taken have turned our lives upside down, and it's good to feel right again, and that the carpet we're standing on isn't going to get yanked out from under our feet for the n-teenth time.


Yeah. Now we can concentrate on the fact that we're having a baby in a month!

A beautiful evening by the lake. Stress relief.

Turns out there is light at the end of the tunnel.


Being without an SLR has been really hard this week. I've been so tense at work and photography on my lunch hour is usually my stress relief.


Got my 60d today spent 15mins walking around the city centre, firing off a few shots with my fast fifty (awesome) and I was completely destressed. Its like getting my left arm back. I feel truly liberated


Whilst the camera on iphone is ok, under good light, I have missed so much: manual focus, manual flash, manual exposure, 1:1 macro, servo AF and above all else depth of field!


Can't wait to get my 7d back as well so I can be double armed :)

I was having a pretty shitty day..then i remembered my chum who offered a stress relief.

Needless to say..I would have punched him...but I was more stressed than that...the Rambo knife seemed more appropriate

Thanks day has improved


Are you stressed? Get a cat, one that likes your attention. Seriously, she takes my mind of things. I love to cuddle with my cat.

And I promis I won't upload as many cat pictures, just kinda love this one!

: ( now I need to write. Have a wonderful weekend flickr friends.

As one of my first full days off to myself I wanted to go shoot for some stress relief. The day was going okay up until just before I left when I received a voice mail to call my Dad back asap. Upon returning the call I got my Mom crying and learned my Grandfather had suddenly passed away.


This is a photo for him, as kids we'd always stay at his house when we visited the Disney Parks. I'll never forget riding down I-4 in the rear facing bench of his station wagon looking for the mickey shaped power pole to know we were close. RIP Grandpa Jack, humorous till the end.

In the past few days I have been riding my bike to empty my mind from all the stress caused by exams at my university college. I decided to take my camera today and made a couple of shots.

She's so cute it's killing me >o< She's a great stress relief for 3 of my grails popping up for sale at the same time <3

Delicate flowers of a hyacinth, more stress relief in the form of flowers for me!

After a busy day at the office, I was happy to be able to get to the beach and enjoy the warm hot breeze before nightfall. And the best part was that the clouds didn't disappear as they usually do

The Java Jaunt, part #2: Kawah Ijen.


Bali is the ideal island for stress relief. Seriously. Its beautiful beaches, jaw dropping reefs, spectacular surf breaks, Lychee Martinis, temples & shrines, banana pancakes, black rice pudding, … So much beauty, in stark contrast with freezing & cold Kazachstan. Vishnu had joined our path, no doubt about it.


After one week it was time to hit the road. Heading West, to Java. The bumpy ride that’s called Adventure immediately started at the port. There are less tourists in Java, so drivers and scammers eagerly jump on any occasion they can take. Taxi, sir? How can we get your money, sir? It’s advisable to have a strict plan if you’re travelling Java. Any confusion/doubt will lead into an opportunity to take you elsewhere. Bargaining is a much intense process than in Bali, and most of the drivers have little knowledge of English. Anyway. Back to the plan.


I had seen pictures of an amazing active volcano in East Java. Research informed me the volcano was kinda hard to reach, and you need to be in good shape to go all the way. The death of a French photographer who slipped during the hike a couple of years ago made it even more harder. Nevertheless, I was determined to see it.


A young boy in his early twenties agreed on taking us to the mount Ijen in his 4x4. What followed was a 3 hour back-breaking ride into the mountains. Halfway the ride we got stuck in a landslide. Locals pulled us out. When we reached the last control post we eagerly stashed some Coca Cola, banana’s and food, and started the steep 2 hour hike to the crater rim. On foot, because there’s no other way to reach the summit.


Meet the Kawah Ijen. An active stratovolcano of the Ijen Plateau. The crater houses the world’s most largest acidic lake, with a shocking pH acidity of 0,5 at its center point. Fall in and you dissolve. Instantly. Active vents at the edge of the lake contain elemental sulfur. The escaping volcanic gasses are channeled through a network of ceramic pipes, resulting in condensation of molten sulfur. It’s this sulfur that gets broken into large pieces and carried out in baskets by miners. Some of these miners carry loads up to 100 kilograms on their back, working amidst the pungent and irritating sulfur smell. Unreal scenery.


Next up: The Java Jaunt, part #3: Gunung Bromo. Being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Getting tips from the expert

Amazing thunder storm surrounded us on a nightly walk around the town.

It could be followed for hours from the town - on the surrounding mountains and across the sea. Cool to just watch, without getting wet oneself!

Wee bit spooky it was too :)


äRRä of the day: February 12th, 2009

Minolta XD-7 - Fujicolor 200 - Minolta MD 135mm f3.5

What a relief!! This morning I decided to abort Project 365:) I admit it, I’m a total failure, I didn’t even last a month, but I feel so much better! I realized I was getting really stressed out by the whole thing, had little time for it and it was becoming a huge hassle. Life is stressful enough as it is, I wasn’t about to get even more stressed because of a photography project (which is suposed to be fun!) , so I quit!


So here I am now, gleefully digging through my archives, no pressure at all:-)


About this capture :

This is the sun setting on the Iberian Peninsula, viewed from the West coats of Ibiza. Ibiza is about 90km away from the peninsula but on clear days you can see the mountain ranges perfectly.


This is SOOC except for some cropping.

I've been feeling pretty down lately. To keep me from worrying about things that I actually have no control over, I've knit some tiny garter stitch squares. These may not be the prettiest socks in the world, but knitting them made me feel happier. :-)
